Women who are pregnant, breast-feeding or postpartum and children who are 2, 3 and 4 years old can receive free produce this summer through the Pennsylvania Farmers Market Nutrition Program.
The Allegheny County Health Department announced last week that women and children enrolled in the Women, Infants and Children, or WIC, Supplemental Food Program can receive checks worth $20 in free produce.
They will be distributed during quarterly WIC appointments beginning in June. Those participants whose appointments are scheduled for July or August were able to pick up their checks early on a walk-in basis by visiting their specific WIC office Thursday at the McKeesport and Turtle Creek offices. They will be able to pick up their checks today at the McKees Rocks and Springdale offices; Monday at Mount Oliver; next Thursday at Carnegie and Downtown; next Friday at Wilkinsburg; and June 17 at Clairton.
